Twitter is a social networking service that allows its users to send and read short, online messages called “tweets” via SMS or one of the many supported web clients. Tweets are text-based posts created through its companion website or mobile application with no editorial comment, only the ability to upload images, which can be done using the site’s embedded photo and video uploading tools.
What are some best practices associated with using Twitter?
Twitter is a social networking service that allows users to exchange messages, known as “tweets,” and view other user’s updates in real time. Tweets are limited to 140 characters with the exception of retweets, which involve reposting another user’s message. It was created by Jack Dorsey and co-founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams on March 21, 2006. The following are some best practices associated with using Twitter:
-Consider including a call-to-action at the end of your tweet (eg., “join me for a chat today”) so that people can take immediate action on what you shared
-Build your follower base slowly and carefully
-Don’t overwhelm your followers; this will discourage engagement
-Engage others in conversation through direct messaging or retweeting them
-Don’t be afraid to share your personal thoughts in conversations with others
What are some good tools for Twitter data analysis?
First, you’ll want to download Twitter data. With this data, you will be able to set up a dashboard so that you can monitor your own tweets and accounts. This can be done by using tools like Tweetdeck or Hootsuite. The tools mentioned are free and easy to use, which is great for someone who has never used social media before!
